Leaky oil pan?

Hi all
How hard or expensive is it to fix or replace a leaky oil pan? 95 carpenter (international/allison) listed says there is a small leak in the oil pan.

Re: Leaky oil pan?

you would have to remove the oil pan to fix if its the gasket.This may require jacking up the engine for clearance,depending on the crossmember height,etc.Not seeing the bus i would guess 4 hours ,but to be sure i would call the bus mech and ask him.Dont think it would be a big thing.

Can you be a little more specific about what we're working with here? Medium duty trucks tend to have a lot of room.
